Woman incapable of drinking entire mug of tea

A WOMAN who appears normal in every other respect is unable to drink more than two-thirds of a mug of tea.

Joanna Kramer of Swindon enthusiastically makes and orders mugs of tea but is apparently unable to consume a full one, regardless of the size of the vessel.

Partner Tom Logan said: “I’ve tried only filling the mug two-thirds full. But then she only drinks two-thirds of that.

“Just two more sips and it’d all be over, but she can’t do it. Does she have a problem letting go? Or is she afraid of seeing the bottoms of cups?

“I’ve got used to it – I don’t even ask the question any more – but friends and waitresses still ask if she’s done only to be dismissed with a wave of the hand and a ‘it’s finished’.

“Oddly, she has no problem whatsoever draining a full glass of wine. Or a bottle.”
